Why our members love NASPA.
Since I have seen NASPA from both sides as an Executive and now an Associate Member, I think NASPA provides such a wide array services that are very beneficial to both State Executives and Associate Members. I appreciate everything that NASPA provides.
NASPA provides a unique and valuable opportunity for state pharmacy association executives to collaborate on challenges, investigate ideas, and share in each other’s successes. As we say in Texas, ‘Together Pharmacy Advances!
The type of work that I have done over the past twenty-five years has necessitated frequent interactions with state pharmacy association executives, and our investment in a NASPA associate membership has helped to meet this need in a huge way.
Being a NASPA member helps me to envision the future of pharmacy by interacting with state, national and even international leaders in the profession. This contact allows me to help pharmacists in Kansas ready themselves for inevitable changes in the way they practice pharmacy.
NASPA has been my support system since I started in this role. Having colleagues who understand the challenges of this position and I can ask questions of has helped me from day one. I also appreciate the camaraderie of those in this organization especially at national events.
All of us have limited time to invest in our careers and the challenges to lead an organization. NASPA has always given me the most return for my participation. You are missing a great reward if you do not actively participate in NASPA.
Membership in NASPA is invaluable. It gives me immediate access to a brainstrust of pharmacy association executives who have an understanding of the day-to-day and longer term work I do; and can provide critical insight and lessons-learned when facing new opportunities and challenges in state pharmacy. NASPA staff has been an invaluable resource for providing key background and context for policy and practice issues that have aided in the passage of substantial pharmacy-related legislation in Maryland . In addition, NASPA serves as a bridge and sieve for me to get the best out of our engagement with national pharmacy associations.
